Australian Simon Whitlock's relegation from the ten-man Betway Premier League was confirmed last week in Dublin, and now just one place remains for the dreaded drop.
Phil Taylor looked for a long time like a shock relegation candidate, but he has turned things around in recent weeks and now three men have the spectre of relegation hanging over them heading to Wales.
Wes Newton, Dave Chisnall and Robert Thornton could all see their Premier League season end prematurely in the Welsh capital on Thursday, and Week Nine's line-up ensures it will be a thrilling end to the night.
All three men are locked together on six points and the fixtures for Cardiff sees Chisnall and Newton going head-to-head in the penultimate clash of the night.
The winner will be safe, but even a draw could be enough for both men as Thornton then takes on 16-time world champion Taylor in the closing match of the evening.
Although all eyes will be on the relegation battle, further up the table the jockeying for position in the top four has already begun, and league leader Michael van Gerwen will fancy his chances of stretching his advantage as he faces relegated Whitlock.
Peter Wright lost his unbeaten record to van Gerwen but will look to bounce back against Gary Anderson, while Adrian Lewis faces Raymond van Barneveld.
The Premier League darts reaches 'Judgement Night' on Thursday when two players will be relegated, watch the action from Cardiff live on Sky Sports 1 from 7pm.
